Diversion Programs: Avoid Conviction And Trial
California law recognizes that nonviolent crimes, particularly those committed by first-time offenders, should not always lead to harsh consequences. Instead, both offenders and the state are often better served through options involving counseling and rehabilitation rather than traditional trials, jail time and criminal records. This alternative path is called diversion.
At The Law Offices of Jacob Glucksman, I work hard to achieve the best possible outcomes for each of my clients and I have an excellent track record. As a former prosecutor, I know how to work with the prosecution and your judge to convince them that diversion is right for your case. From my office in Beverly Hills, I represent clients throughout Los Angeles.

Who Qualifies For Diversion?
Diversion programs are generally available only in cases of minor offenses, including drug crimes, DUI, theft and prostitution. However, even if you have been charged with a more serious offense such as a violent crime or a sex crime, I urge you to contact me to discuss your defense options today.
With an in-depth knowledge of the law and an insider’s perspective into prosecutorial strategies, I am often able to resolve tough cases favorably — getting cases dismissed and charges reduced and winning acquittals.
Most diversion programs in California are limited to people without prior convictions for the charges they currently face. You may be a candidate for diversion if you are:
- A college student
- A first-time offender
- Struggling with drug or alcohol addiction
To ensure that you handle your criminal case in the best way possible, it is important to work with an experienced and reputable criminal law attorney. You likely have more options than you are aware of, and a skilled lawyer like me can help you through this difficult time.
